Being a successful performer means learning how to manage rejection. There is no better example of this than the audition process. No matter how experienced and skilled you are in your craft, there’s no way to know of its what the director, producer, or casting director has in mind. No matter how phenomenal your abilities, you might just not be what they’re looking for. That’s what this sigil, requested by no less than two of our Tumblr followers, speaks to. Success can mean a lot of things — maybe you get the job, or maybe the casting director has something else you might be perfect for — and being open to those possibilities can help soothe the sting when an audition doesn’t go the way you’d hoped. Remember: The only way to truly guarantee success is to keep showing up.
